If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).

During travels around the UK in 2001 I visited Folkestone in Kent on the south coast of England.
Perched opposite the (by then) inappropriately named "Pleasure Beach", I fell in love with the abandoned Pier Hotel.
The grand crescent-shaped white building sparked off all sorts of unrealistic dreams of buying it and restoring it. The balconies, the little attic windows, all overlooking the ocean.
Even the thought of exploring its interior with my camera in hand in its then derelict state excited my imagination, though I never did.
After seeing my photo online, a Welshman advised me it has been restored to its former glory and is now let as apartments.
